    My experience with bureaucracies is that they don't respond to suggestions, but people are paid to respond to simple questions. I didn't suggest anything, just enquired. I'm sure they have many more important things to consider, and I'll bet solo sailors aren't in that equation. yet

    Hi Jackie -

    I was under the impression that outward facing communication from the SSS to another organization is through the SSS Commodore. Shouldn't your letter have been from Don Martin as SSS Commodore, likely with input from Brian Boschma as SSS TransPac Chair?

    Rob, I agree. Official SSS business should involve the Board and the Commodore, and in this case the Race Chair. I hope no one takes it alone to ask the Coast Guard about permits! Leave official business so the officials.

    Pat Broderick, former SSS Commodore

    Jim, Would you use Ni'ihau as an offset mark to avoid traffic jams at the turning mark?
